Philosophy in the Hopper

FWIW, I currently have two pieces in the hopper:

1. Distracted from Meaning: A Phenomenology of Smartphones — a monograph, under contract with Bloomsbury Academic (2022).

2. “Performance, Technology, and Well-Being” — a chapter I am writing for The Oxford Handbook on the Phenomenology of Music (2022). This chapter will draw upon Albert Borgmann’s philosophy of technology—specifically his concepts of focal practices and focal things—to make sense of the precariousness and meaningfulness of live musical performance.
